That is one well-coordinated snare line! Nice connection.

This puzzle solution takes me back. I used that word in the name of a Super Smash Bros. Brawl stage I made back in 2008. Good times.

It's Helltaker's entire demon harem drawn in zero gravity just for fun. Why not? @helltaker looks like fun, but I've never played it. I showed this to Helltaker's Lemmy community too. Also, why not?

This time, I was determined to play without any tools, for better or worse. The first three guesses left only one possibility and I had a really hard time thinking of the word. No one expects those letters...

I'm the one who regularly posts things like today's puzzle solution, so it made me happy to see it recognized today. After all, it is the absolute safest starting word for Hard Mode.

LANCE gang? LANCE gang! 🍡

I've been using mostly LANCE for the past two months. Words starting with S were getting me trapped, so I considered top performing starting words for bots and picked an unused solution word from those. LANCE has been doing pretty well for me, but non-Hard Mode players have better options.

Martineski, you're back! I thought you quit the Fediverse after the government of Mali took over the .ml domains you used. Is Imaginary Slice of Life ever going to return and be FNIC insured? That one's my favorite.

That was hard! I referred to my own research and theory all the way through this round, maximum tryhard mode, and still got a 5/6. I think my theory needs some more work.

I think I played perfectly here, given my starting word and a weird solution like this.

hitstun ,
hitstun avatar

There are defenses against that. If you're not on Hard Mode, you could ignore your clues for one turn and eliminate C, F, and B in one guess...

...Wait a minute... checks his research

Oops! There are no playable words containing a C, an F, and a B. You'd have to settle for just two of them with a word like FARCE, CABLE, or FABLE.

This is Liv: Empyrea from Punishing: Gray Raven, a inspired spectacle brawler which is unfortunately also a Chinese gacha game. I'll never play it and it'll likely become dead and unplayable within a few years. Liv seems to have an eclipse theme, great for the eclipse we'll see tomorrow in the US, so here she is.

@hitstun just wanted to check with you as I think I misunderstood your request for a CSS var for color scheme. Do you mean you'd like something like class=theme--scheme-[light/dark] on the body class? For instance when the user selects tokyo night, solarized dark, dark, kbin it's theme--scheme-dark and when light or solarized light, theme--scheme-light to save you from having to type out selectors for each theme?

And I did investigate the magazine description federation issues. Think I have an idea, I'll make an issue for it and it will probably be the next thing I work on after my current open PRs.

hitstun ,
hitstun avatar

@e-five Yeah, something like that. I'm sure some Mbin instances will want to create their own themes in addition to the six default ones. If each new theme sets either theme--scheme-dark or theme--scheme-light, they'd be compatible with any magazine-specific CSS that uses them.

I was also thinking about making the themes set their colors in RGBA format like rgba(253,246,227,1) instead of hex like #fdf6e3. That way, we can set alpha values for cool transparent backgrounds and gradients. But I guess if I really wanted to, I could write JavaScript that make that conversion for me. I keep forgetting that there's magazine-specific JavaScript too.

hitstun ,
hitstun avatar

@e-five Ah, that makes sense now. I wondered why the Solarized theme has a light background on my desktop but a dark background on my phone. Those match my dark mode preferences on those browsers. I thought I messed up my CSS somewhere.

I apologize for the inactivity here, but I wanted to post this right and it took time. This footage is from the 2023 Pinwheel and Kite Festival in Nanhu Park, Tangshan, Hebei, northern China. Mr. Tao is filming his daredevil friend going up with a giant kite tethered to a car, which looks equal parts awesome and terrifying. Like most of my posts, don't try this at home!

How do you take four guesses and still get an A- from Gradle? Easy, just make the solution a word you've never seen before. A- for effort.

Oh hey, it's that time Umeshu Lovers made a bunch of concept art for a Kiki's Delivery Service/Spirited Away crossover game. It looks good in art portfolios, but if they actually made this game, I'd play the heck out of it!

Today's Easter and I like to post bunnies around this time. These innocent little bunnies get stolen a lot, so I made sure this is the original artist. Giving creators credit is the most important rule in Floating Is Fun.
